Being messengers of compassion and hope: This preached retreat will offer reflections about the ways in which Jesus reveals to us the God who shows compassion and unconditional love for every human being. It will also explore ways in which we as followers of Jesus continue his mission and move forward in hope in times when hope is often lacking. The retreat will be conducted in an atmosphere of silence. The retreat will be led by Fr. John Fuellenbach, a member of the Society of the Divine Word, who has written a number of books on scripture and theology and has many years’ experience in teaching and conducting workshops and retreats in different parts of the world. Monday 17-Monday 24 July.
